Last year is gone

OK, we can stop making comparisons to last year with the New Orleans Saints.

You know, the comparisons that said, "Last year the Saints opened on the road for their first two games and won them both.''

Not happening this year.

If there's any comparison for tonight, it might be the first preseason game against the Steelers when the Saints didn't show up.

As for me, I can't determine what is a bigger concern -- offense or defense.

The defense was gashed by Joe Addai and carved up by Peyton Manning. You expected Manning to get his numbers, you hoped they could stop Addai.

The offense, though, wasn't much of a factor all game.

Heck, it's midway through the fourth quarter and the Saints have scored 10 points -- seven on a defensive touchdown.

This happened at times last year -- the Saints being shut down despite all of those offensive weapons.

It's not the end of the world. And the Saints will surely be a good team at some point.

Tonight against the Colts was not that night.
